  • Photos and bios needed from forum members

    I am in the process of putting together the GopherHaul Lawn Care Business Show Episode Guide for episodes 15 - 25.

    What I want to do is include photos from as many of the forum members as possible. The photos will appear in color on the front and back cover of the book and then within the book I am going to have a section showing each photo and a short bio you send to me. Plug what ever you want to plug in the bio.

    I also plan to make sure you are quoted in the book as well.

    Then I am going to get the book up for sale on amazon.com

    I think this is going to be so fantastic for all of us taking part. When was the last time your picture was on a book! Also if I get a quote in the book from you, you will then be able to make mention on your business website that you were quoted in the book and show a link to the book on amazon. It will really add an incredible amount of credibility to your resume.

    This is really going to Kick ###!

    Ideally I would like photos that really encapsulate who you are. Like for instance, with Chuck, he might want to send in pictures of him singing on stage and in his bio talk about how he started a band and a business. Then maybe have a more calmer photo for your bio section.

    I want this to be inspiring to all those reading this to show that we all have many different interests and show off what we have done.

    The front and back cover will be a collage of all our pictures.

    This project isn't completed yet so I may need to change things but this is the plan.

    Send me as large of photos as you can email me here.

    You can also email me your bio like a paragraph or less or post it here.

    I so look forwards to your responses.

    Will do Steve, I'll put that together for you later tonight....

    Funny that you use me as the example, "like Chuck, he's both a freak & a down to earth sensible business man"
    lol.

      Chuck I think you are a great example of a guy who is doing what he wants to do. There are so many people out there that only dream of fronting a band or dream of running their own business. You are a doer. You are a member of a small percentage of people who DO. That is why you are inspiring!

        I never really though about it that way. I'm flattered that you think so. Thank you.

          I do think so. You are welcome. It's very difficult to see yourself at times when you are in the mix. It's very hard to reflect and see how you are living the dream. Most of us just never have a moment to stop and reflect on it. But from an outsiders perspective, I see it.

          This book is going to be a celebration of that.

          Thank you for the bio.

          I am going to post it on here to give an idea of what you created so others on the forum can join in. Remember if you want to promote your business or your website, you are absolutely welcomed too and if you want to change your bio, just let me know or repost it. This is going to be by far the coolest thing that has come out of the forum yet.

          I also wanted to thank chuck for submitting all those pictures from his band and his business.

          From Chuck
          Quote[/b] ]Chuck is a 30 yr old Floridian transplant (moved from Long Island N.Y. about 19 years ago).
          By day he is an business owner running a lawn care / landscaping company in Charlotte County Florida. He is married & a father of two young children one girl, one boy. On top of that he has yet to let go of music which has been his passion since childhood. He is the lead guitarist & vocalist for an all original rock band called Jack Somebody. "Running a family, then a business, then a band (in that order of importance) gets tiresome at times but I love all three. The business is getting better all the time, which makes family life nicer and I have more time to enjoy my wife and kids now, The band has gained more notoriety playing shows from Tampa down through Ft. Myers & the release of our 2nd cd seems to have some fan anticipation at least regionally so all is good!"

            I want to thank Chuck for the pictures too. He really sent some good ones.

            They are going to make for great pictures in the cover collage. One day we will all look back at these pictures and we will get a kick out of it.

                Yes, I want you to take part in this.

                It's going to be at least a month before I finish with all the text. I wanted to get the bio section and photo submission up and running now to give everyone plenty of time to get involved.

                          Hi Blaine,

                          That is a great photo. If you have any other high res photos, please email them to me here.

                          If you can post your bio here, that would be great. It's going to be published so everyone will see it in the book. Also it will give others an idea of how everyone is putting together their bio. This will be very inspiring! Maybe you could include something about Hurricane Katrina so others know what you went through? Just a thought. I am looking forwards to it.
